Re: Configure TorDNS
First I want to apologize for the barrage of questions - I normally read
as much as I can before posting, and in this case I have, but Googling
TorDNS does not bring much in the way of results... That being said I
want to ask questions in an intelligent way even though some of them may
seem elementary (probably are to most of you).
So I downloaded the TorDNS localhost version. That magically worked :)
I'd still like to find out which files I need to edit to get the other
version working. In the meantime - here's one more:
I have ZoneAlarm installed. I have noticed that TorDNS gets ZoneAlarm
to popup to tell me TorDNS is trying to access the net with the
following IP addresses:
127.0.0.1:9050 (the Tor app)
I wonder why it tries to connect to two separate ports for Tor.
Also, since I have disabled the DNS Client service and have changed the
DNS Server to 127.1.2.2 I can no longer ping machines on my LAN. Is
there a workaround for this?
